SUMMIT, NJ - The Christ Child Society of Summit (CCS) will host its 10th Annual Baby Shower on April 7 at St. Teresa of Avila Church's Memorial Hall. The event is expected to attract more than 100 guests, each of whom it is anticipated will donate a new layette item, such as outfits, pajamas, receiving blankets, onesies in newborn and 3-month sizes. In lieu of one of these items, guests may also provide a monetary donation of $40.

The Christ Child Society of Summit provides bundles of essential clothing, or layettes, to babies at Overlook and Morristown Medical Center's free pediatric clinics. Since their first baby shower in 2007, CCS has touched well over 1,400 babies in the community by providing them with essential clothing.

In addition, through the efforts of the “Knitting Angels,” a hand-knit or sewn item completes each package. The layette bundles help babies and their families with limited resources get off to a happy and healthy start, with every CCS chapter in the country providing layettes to needy newborns in their area. The layettes are the signature and founding project of the National Christ Child Society.

Baby Shower Co-Chairs Sheila Schlageter and Julie Vlass will welcome guests at a Mass at 11:30 a.m., followed by a catered lunch.

The CCS' Co-President, Kathryn Colao, said, “I love how each year our baby shower brings together our members and friends in the community to celebrate the advent of spring and to support the Christ Child layette program.  The adorable baby clothes and donations we receive make our layettes extra special and help us serve local families in need in a meaningful way.”

St. Teresa of Avila Church's Memorial Hall is located 306 Morris Avenue.

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
